Netherlands: Muslims want response to anti-mosque violence
Farid Azarkan, chairman of the Cooperation Association of Moroccans in the Netherlands (SNM), wants to meet with Ivo Opstelten, the new minister of Public Safety and Justice, as soon as possible regarding incidents of violence against mosques.
Azarkan says that the Muslims in the Netherlands are getting restless about the graffiti and arson. A mosque in Dordrecht was shot at least week, and there were several cases when dead animals were left next to mosques.
Azarkan says that the politicians should respond with more intensity, as they do when such incidents occur to Jews or gays. He says that Muslims lodge relatively few complaints of arson due to fear of reprisals.
